The views are spectacular. There are plenty of hiking trails that through out the lush sweet smelling pine trees. There are so many mature trees other than Pine trees that give this Forest some beautiful colors. We did find public toilets. Bring your camera!

A great place to unwind. Lots of forest trails to choose from. Great views of Mt Hood. We really liked Lost Lake and Trillium Lake.

Was not a clear day so we took our chances. Only decent views of Mt Hood. Great little fishing area. Nice couple of miles hike.

Spectacularly beautiful old growth forests straight out of a Tolkien novel. The moss and lichen covered trees never lost their enchantment after days of hiking. We loved the Little Zigzag trail which was a short family friendly stroll and Ramona Falls which was moderately difficult...More
